Check out the new hot daily deals for today, like the lowest price ever on a 65″ LG C2 OLED 4K TV, a GeForce RTX 3080 GPU for $699.99, the Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon Edition now orderable on Amazon, or the latest Apple iPad for only $279.99, and more.
65″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1797
This is the lowest price we have ever seen for the 65″ and 77″ LG C2 OLED TVs. The LG C2 is, in my humble opinion, the best mainstream OLED TV to get right now. Unlike other brands who have only recently started pushing out OLED TVs, LG has several generations of updates and improvements over the years. The C2 is the newest model and it features an improved “Evo” OLED panel over the C1. Previously reserved only for the LG Gallery Series OLED TVs, the Evo panel offers higher brightness levels and thus better HDR range.
This is a perfect gaming TV. It has four HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel that supports true 4K @ 120Hz passthrough when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped PC. There’s also a variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay. The LG C2 also supports HGiG, which is automatically calibrated tone mapping specific to your TV model.
Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon Edition Now Orderable from Amazon
The first themed Nintendo Switch OLED is now available on Amazon. The Splatoon Edition includes a sweet pair of blue and yellow gradient Joy-Con controllers (white underbelly) and a graffiti adorned Switch body and docking station. It’s only $10 more than the retail cost of the standard Switch OLED console, and in my opinion, more than worth the surcharge.
MSI GeForce RTX 3080 GPU for $699.99
The GeForce RTX 3080 GPU has finally hit its original MSRP from back when it launched. The MSI “Ventus 3X Plus” GeForce RTX 3080 GPU is the least expensive RTX 3080 variant on Amazon right now at a solid price of $699.99. The RTX 3080 really doesn’t need any introduction. This is the de facto card to get if you plan to run current generation games at 4K, since it’s up to 50% faster than the previous generation RTX 2080 SUPER and doesn’t command the exorbitant price of the RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3090 ( both of which are a mere 3%-5% faster in real world performance). It has an HDMI 2.1 port for passing through 4K @ 120Hz, which it has the power to drive even with resource hungry games like Elden Ring.
Apple iPad 10.2″ 64GB for $279.99
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the newest Apple iPad (it was $299 on Amazon Prime Day). Apple’s latest 10.2″ iPad is a great option for school, work, or simply relaxing with your favorite movie, book, or streaming service. It features the new Apple A13 Bionic chip for fast CPU and GPU performance to tackle just about anything, and the large 10.2-inch Retina display ensures everything is bright and crisp during use. iPad also features both a front-facing camera for voice chat, and rear camera for taking photos and videos.
ASUS TUF Dash 15″ Intel Core i7 Alder Lake RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop for $999.99
This was one of the most popular gaming laptop deals during Amazon Prime Day, and it’s back for a cheaper price! That’s right, this particular ASUS TUF Dash 15″ gaming laptop was priced at $1100 on Black Friday, but it’s only $999.99 today. It features an RTX 3060 GPU with 105W max TGP and the newest generation Intel Core i7-12650H Alder Lake processor. New Alder Lake processors are a significant performance bump over previous gen Intel CPUs.
Dell S2721DGF 27″ 1440p GSYNC Gaming Monitor
The Dell S2721DGF is one of the best 27″ gaming monitors under $500, and it’s heavily discounted today. The S2721DGF boasts a QHD (2560×1440) resolution, a high quality IPS panel with wide viewing angles and excellent color rendition including 98% DCI-P3 color coverage, a super fast 1ms response time and up to 165Hz refresh rate through the DisplayPort.
Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for $999.99
Woot has the Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for only $999.99. This is an outstanding price for one of the most powerful video cards available. On Amazon, the least expensive RTX 3090 GPU is over $1300. Although the RTX 3090 is indeed a best-in-class gaming card (it’s as much as 20% more powerful than the RTX 3080 at 4K resolution), it’s actually not really intended for gamers. The RTX 3090 is the workstation GPU of choice not because of its processing power (which it has in spades), but because of the massive 24GB of GDDR6X RAM.
Apple Watch SE GPS + Cellular for $229.99
Amazon has the Apple Watch SE with both GPS and cellular connectivity for only $229.99. We’ve seen the GPS only model go down to this price but never the pricier GPS and cellular model. Despite the lower price tag than the Apple Watch Series 7, the Watch SE is still big on features, such as a large Retina OLED display, 2x faster CPU than the Series 3, heart rate monitoring, GPS, swimproof design, haptic feedback, and more. If the health-centric features on the Apple Watch Series 7 don’t spark your interest, you might be better served saving $170 and going with the SE.
Acer Predator Orion 3000 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3070 Gaming PC for $1399.99
This is a great price for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3070 GPU. The RTX 3070 is significantly more powerful than the RTX 3060 Ti or the RTX 2080 SUPER. It is the perfect card for 1440p gaming, even at high refresh rates (the RTX 3080 and higher are generally overkill). It’s paired with an 11th generation Intel Core i7-11700F 8-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and 1TB HDD. The case looks slick too, with its windowed side panel and RGB.
Acer Predator Triton 300 15″ QHD Intel Core i7 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1,299
This new laptop deal deserves special mention even though it’s not from Amazon. Walmart has this Acer Predator Triton gaming laptop, equipped with a 15″ 2560×1440 display, 11th generation Intel Core i7-11800H CPU, RTX 3070 GPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD for only $1299 shipped. The higher resolution on the display requires a slightly more powerful GPU to run games on it, and the RTX 3070 is the perfect candidate (it’s a bit more powerful than the RTX 2080 SUPER mobile GPU).
Preorder the Sega Genesis Mini 2 from Amazon JP
This is one the only ways to get your hands on a Sega Genesis Mini 2 preorder, which releases in late October. This is the new and improved version of the Sega Genesis Mini that was released back in 2019, with better hardware, a small footprint based on the Sega Genesis Model 2, and over 50 preloaded games including Sonic the Hedgehog CD, Shining Force CD, Virtua Racing and more (not all games have been announced). Note that there will be a $21.99 overseas shipping charge.
Arcade1Up Street Fighter II Big Blue Cabinet
This Arcade1Up Streetfighter II “Big Blue” Arcade Cabinet normally sells for $600, but Walmart has it on sale today for only $399.99. Unlike most other Arcade1Up cabinets, this package includes a matching stool and a themed riser. The Arcade1Up Street Fighter II cabinet is a 3:4 replica of the arcade original, making it approximately 4 feet tall. That riser raises the height by another 1 foot, giving you the option of both sitting and standing play. Also included is a light-up marquee, light-up deck protector, and a Street Fighter themed stool. If you don’t have a buddy around to play with, you can hop onto the live WiFi (no subscription required) to play with other remote Arcade1Up players. 12 games are pre-loaded including several editions of Street Fighter II, Super Puzzle Fighter, and Darkstalkers.
40% Off HBO Max When You Prepay For a Year
Game of Thrones’ House of the Dragon Premieres August 21
Pay for 12 months of HBO Max and get 40% off your order total. HBO Max is normally $9.99/month ($119.88/yr) for the ad-supported plan and $14.99/month ($179.88/yr) for the ad-free plan. Instead you’d be paying $69.99 for 1 year of the ad-supported plan or $104.99 for 1 year of the ad-free plan. That’s technically a savings of 41.6%.
This is the perfect time to sign up for HBO Max. The highly anticipated Game of Thrones’ House of the Dragon premiered exclusively on HBO Max starting August 21. Set 200 years before the events of the original Game of Thrones TV series, House of the Dragon covers the fall of House Targaryen. In addition to Game of Thrones, HBO Max is host to the entire collection of DC movies (including The Batman), Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings and movies like Dune, King Richard, Free Guy, and much, much more.
Wingspan Board Game for $39.99
Wingspan is an incredibly good board game. So good in fact that we consider it the best board game of 2019. Improbably enough, the year’s hottest game is one about keeping birds in a nature reserve. But the wide appeal of the theme, lovely art and simple rules meant lots of players got to enjoy the fiendish engine-building game beneath. A choice of a mere four actions blossoms into an excruciating balance between adding birds, feeding them and scoring points. Yet tricky as it is, the pace of play leaves you itching for another try to evolve your strategies, while 170 bird cards ensure every game is different. The board game is worth it even at the $65 retail price, but today it’s nearly 40% off.
Newest Apple TV 4K 32GB and 64GB Both on Sale
The Apple TV 4K happened to be one of Amazon Prime Day’s hottest sellers. Today the price has dropped down to the same as what we saw on Prime Day. The newest Apple TV features two major upgrades. It boasts an A12 Bionic processor that boosts graphics performance, video decoding, and audio processing and delivers high frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision. It also includes a new Apple TV remote. The overall build quality is better than before, but the biggest enhancements are a 5-way clickpad, mute button, and a dedicated power button that works for your TV, receiver, and Apple TV.
